This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This calculator is designed to give the approximate distance that you can expect from each club in your bag, based on the input values given. While this is only approximate, it has been tested by a large cross section of golfers and acclaimed as accurate. Several manufacturers have also tested it and agree that it is extremely accurate. Howver, good it is, for a more accurate evaluation of your attributes and abilities, see your local PGA professional. Tee it high and let it fly!

Our calculator takes all of your factors into consideration and determines from them the normal shot distance of each club, assuming reasonably good impact and contact with the ball. The weak value is for a slightly less than perfect hit for beginning to average players or a soft shot for that club for better players; the strong value is for a near perfect hit for beginning to average players or a hard hit for that club for better players. These are general calculations and do not take into consideration that loft and club head angles may vary from different manufacturers. Drivers and wedges in particular have several possible selections for loft. You will also see that based on ability and size, iron distances vary, in some cases significatly. Better players tend to strike irons at the correct impact angle more often than higher handicap players. Higher handicap players often hit 7, 8 and 9 irons for maximum distance while better players hit them for accuracy and stopping ability. No consideration is taken for temperature, humidity, altitude, trajectory, ball compression, wind or firmness of the ground for roll. Assumptions based on both theory and facts are that metal headed "woods" are slightly to considerably longer than woods; better players may prefer to carry a 1, 2, 3 and 4 irons while average to higher handicap players may prefer to use the metal or wood rough equivalents for more consistent play. The average shot is not perfect; in fact even good players rarely hit perfect shots. Good players have a wider range for each club and hit fewer poor shots; they may not hit all that many more good shots. The greatest distance factors are mechanics and club head speed. Not all advice is good and often is bad. Practice and repetition create good players. See your local pro for hands on advice.
